What is New Seasons trying to do, turn you into a pharmacist? In a word, yes, and none too soon. But you’re more than a pharmacist, you are a compounding pharmacists who create their own potions/smoothies.
A pinch of this, a dash of that, and plenty of greens. It seems so healthy because it is so healthy. Food, the best medicine.
To drive the point further, more than a few New Seasons customers were familiar faces from Murray 24Hr Fitness. If you go to a gym at the same time for a week you’ll find regulars. They are people on schedules doing the sort of exercise you say you did.
They take their health seriously by combining advanced work-outs with nutritional awareness.
Yes, they are boomers. Call them Better Boomer candidates for the Tripe Crown.
- They understand the science of food and New Seasons’ illuminating reminder.
